Rather than seeking help for her ailment, the BBC Breakfast presenter was in hospital giving blood. In the video she can be seen with the blood-taking device strapped to her arm, saying to the camera: "Giving blood, it's all fine, enjoying it. The point is, we're making a difference, it's painless, it's quick and I'm going to be out of here in 10 minutes."
